Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Services
We provide support to individuals interested in filing chapter 7 bankruptcy in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas.
We can help you obtain a discharge of your debts.
Many people are afraid to file bankruptcy due to the negative stigma associated with the process. There is a lot of misinformation about the long term effects of filing bankruptcy. One of the main concerns we notice is that people believe they will not regain credit for up to 10 years. In reality, bankruptcy provides people with a fresh start by eliminating their debt. You can begin rebuilding your credit immediately after your case is completed. By using good habits going forward, you can raise your credit score to the 700s within 2 years of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You can also qualify for a mortgage 2 years after your case.
Our Chapter 7 attorneys in Houston, Texas have years of experience representing clients who file bankruptcy. Our goal is to make an overwhelming process understandable and seamless for our clients. During the initial consultation, we analyze your unique situation to figure out if bankruptcy is the right solution. We also make sure you qualify for a Chapter 7 by completing a “means test”.
Once a case has been filed, an “automatic stay” provides immediate protection from your creditors. This means all collection calls will stop. Also, any pending lawsuits or garnishment actions will stop. In most cases, you will only attend one short meeting with a Trustee appointed to your case. The typical Chapter 7 case will be completed about 3 to 4 months after the case is filed.
If you are interested in eliminating your debts, such as your credit cards, medical bills, and accounts in collections, contact us today.
